Independent quotes by Magdalena Ganowska
#1. Solitude is the worst of punishments. It's like waiting in the Death Row for your last supper and the final blow, the chair or gas or whatever. The utter act of capital punishment, except it's lasting an eternity. You'd say being alone, single, can have an array of possibilities, positive sides. You'd argue when being approached with such a statement! You'd mention how good it feels to be independent, to have a free choice, not depending on anyone else's opinion. The space in your life, the remote in your hand that is not wrestled for, the cookies, still present in the jar, waiting for you to eat them. The wide bed and the covers just for your own pleasure and usage. I can see you throwing your arguments at me, fighting passionately since you strongly believe that what you say, is the truth.
And then, the night falls, devouring your clearly visible assumptions and postulates, making some room for doubt and fright. You hear the silence that grows around you, feel it possessing you from the inside and you don't have time to brace yourself for what's coming. The horrid feeling of incompletion and senseless existence catch you with overpowering force, making your throat shrink and your mind tight. You're scared so much that all seems so dark and eerie. Then, you ask yourself whether it was really you who chose this, who decided upon this unbearable state of utter loneliness. The answer is usually the same. It is always you, always me. Not consciously, but by our choices, we #Quote by Magdalena Ganowska
Independent quotes by Amanda Schull
#2. The work that I have been doing on television has been important to me because I have had the opportunity to portray very strong, intelligent women. It has been such a privilege to depict a woman that is independent, unapologetic, and resilient on both shows. #Quote by Amanda Schull
Independent quotes by Victoria Justice
#3. Well, I'm an independent person. #Quote by Victoria Justice
Independent quotes by Ronald Fisher
#4. Although no explanation can be expected to be satisfactory, it remains a possibility among others that Mendel was deceived by some assistant who knew too well what was expected. This possibility is supported by independent evidence that the data of most, if not all, of the experiments have been falsified so as to agree closely with Mendel's expectations. #Quote by Ronald Fisher
Independent quotes by Warren W. Wiersbe
#5. God is not in a hurry. He kept Abraham and Sarah waiting twenty-five years before Issac was born, and Issac and Rebekah waited twenty years for Esau and Jacob, Jacob had to wait fourteen years to get the bride he really wanted, and then he had to serve six more years to build up his flocks so he could be independent, a total of twenty years. Twenty-two years passed between Joseph's betrayal by his brothers and the brothers' reconciliation in Egypt. God is not in a hurry because all His works are done in love. "Love is patient, love is kind" (1 Cor.13:4). Let's be grateful that God takes His time. #Quote by Warren W. Wiersbe
Independent quotes by Virginia Euwer Wolff
#6. The teenage years are the years to examine faith - the need to be independent and the need to be anchored. Who made all this? And what do I have to do with it? #Quote by Virginia Euwer Wolff
Independent quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#7. If we look more closely, we see that any violent display of power, whether political or religious, produces an outburst of folly in a large part of mankind; indeed, this seems actually to be a psychological and sociological law: the power of some needs the folly of others. It is not that certain human capacities, intellectual capacities for instance, become stunted of destroyed, but rather that the upsurge of power makes such an overwhelming impression that men are deprived of their independent judgment, and ... give up trying to assess the new state of affairs for themselves. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Independent quotes by Patty Duke
#8. We call that Sean's little independent movie. #Quote by Patty Duke
Independent quotes by Robert Adams
#9. The only things that distinguish the photographer from everybody else are his pictures: they alone are the basis for our special interest in him. If pictures cannot be understood without knowing details of the artist's private life, then that is a reason for faulting them; major art, by definition, can stand independent of its maker. #Quote by Robert Adams
Independent quotes by Melinda Gates
#10. A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Independent quotes by Pico Iyer
#11. Irreverence, independent-mindedness and a hunger for far-off cultures have defined it {San Francisco} ever since people began streaming into the area in 1849 in search of new fortunes from gold, and a settlement of 812 souls became within two years a city of almost 25,000, many from China, Korea and Australia, clustered around more than 1,000 gambling houses. #Quote by Pico Iyer
Independent quotes by Hussein Chalayan
#12. Being a part of exhibitions is not a burden; it's another way for an independent label such as mine to reach a larger audience by exposing them to my whole body of work. #Quote by Hussein Chalayan
Independent quotes by Peter L. Bernstein
#13. So we pour in data from the past to fuel the decision-making mechanisms created by our models, be they linear or nonlinear. But therein lies the logician's trap: past data from real life constitute a sequence of events rather than a set of independent observations, which is what the laws of probability demand.[...]It is in those outliers and imperfections that the wildness lurks. #Quote by Peter L. Bernstein
Independent quotes by John Roberts
#14. The States are separate and independent sovereigns. Sometimes they need to act like it. #Quote by John Roberts
Independent quotes by Arthur Koestler
#15. A fact, once discovered, leads an existence of its own, and enters into relations with other facts of which their discoverers have never dreamt. Apollonius of Perga discovered the laws of the useless curves which emerge when a plane intersects a cone at various angles: these curves proved, centuries later, to represent the paths followed by planets, comets, rockets, and satellites.

One cannot escape the feeling [wrote Heinrich Herz] that these mathematical formulae have an independent existence and an intelligence of their own, that they are wiser than we are, wiser even than their discoverers, that we get more out of them than was originally put into them.

This confession of the discoverer of radio-waves sounds suspiciously like an echo of Kepler, echoing Plato, echoing Pythagoras: 'Methinks that all of nature and the graceful sky are set into symbols in geomatriam. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Independent quotes by Edith Wharton
#16. Undine was fiercely independent and yet passionately imitative. She wanted to surprise every one by her dash and originality, but she could not help modelling herself on the last person she met. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Independent quotes by Khalid Masood
#17. Nothing is integral part of something. There's no such thing as an independent "Nothing" or Nothingness. That is, "Nothing is a state of matter" (or/and) a clear-cut dimension of time. Moreover, Nothing or Nothingness may be the ultimate building block of the universe or time itself. In my view, an ultimate extreme level of a moment in time is nothing but "Nothing" in itself. #Quote by Khalid Masood
Independent quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#18. I love everything about Tyler Durden, his courage and his smarts. His nerve. Tyler is funny and charming and forceful and independent, and men look up to him and expect him to change their world. Tyler is capable and free, and I am not. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Independent quotes by Rose Macaulay
#19. Parents are untamed, excessive, potentially troublesome creatures; charming to be with for a time, in the main they must lead their own lives, independent and self-employed, with companions of their own age and selection ... #Quote by Rose Macaulay
Independent quotes by Haruki Murakami
#20. A strange, terrific force unlike anything I've ever experienced is sprouting in my heart, taking root there, growing. Shut up behind my rib cage, my warm heart expands and contracts independent of my will
over and over. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Independent quotes by Bette Davis
#21. It's a very independent male creature that lives alone, and a lot of independent females who live alone. It's all very sad but it's much easier for both sexes to do it this way nowadays. #Quote by Bette Davis
Independent quotes by James F. Simon
#22. The future chief justice of the United States told the delegates that an independent federal judiciary was a necessary bulwark against an overreaching Congress. If Congress were to exceed its powers, said Marshall, it would be the duty of the judiciary to declare the action void. Marshall #Quote by James F. Simon
Independent quotes by Aldous Huxley
#23. Partly on his interest being focussed on what he calls 'the soul,' which he persists in regarding as an entity independent of the physical environment, whereas, as I tried to point out to him . . . #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Independent quotes by Harry Shearer
#24. I didn't have a lot of independent film connections. It really took until the digital film revolution came along that I realized that I could do it myself. #Quote by Harry Shearer
Independent quotes by Donna Air
#25. I've always earned my own money and enjoy being independent. It's how I was brought up. #Quote by Donna Air
Independent quotes by Alexes Razevich
#26. This must happen to every child." I suddenly thought. "The moment when you realize your parent is a full person in their own right with their own life. Funny how we fight so hard to be seen as independent and capable ourselves but don't allot the same consideration to a parent. #Quote by Alexes Razevich
Independent quotes by Martin Heidegger
#27. The small are always dependent on the great; they are "small" precisely because they think they are independent. The great thinker is one who can hear what is greatest in the work of other "greats" and who can transform it in an original manner. #Quote by Martin Heidegger
Independent quotes by Vaclav Havel
#28. You may ask what kind of a republic I dream of. Let me reply: I dream of a republic independent, free, and democratic, of a republic economically prosperous and yet socially just; in short, of a humane republic which serves the individual and which therefore holds the hope that the individual will serve it in turn. Of a republic of well-rounded people, because without such it is impossible to solve any of our problems, human, economic, ecological, social, or political. #Quote by Vaclav Havel
Independent quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#29. The being who discharges the duties of its station, is independent; and, speaking of women at large, their first duty is to themselves as rational creatures, and the next, in point of importance, as citizens, is that, which includes so many, of a mother. The rank in life which dispenses with their fulfilling this duty, necessarily degrades them by making them mere dolls. Or, should they turn to something more important than merely fitting drapery upon a smooth block, their minds are only occupied by some soft platonic attachment; or, the actual management of an intrigue may keep their thoughts in motion; for when they neglect domestic duties, they have it not in their power to take the field and march and counter-march like soldiers, or wrangle in the senate to keep their faculties from rusting. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Independent quotes by Willa Cather
#30. There was a basic harmony between Antonia and her mistress [Mrs. Harling]. They had strong, independent natures, both of them. They knew what they liked, and were not always trying to imitate other people. They loved children and animals and music, and rough play, and digging in the earth. They liked to prepare rich, hearty food and to see people eat it; to make up soft white beds and to see youngsters asleep in them. They ridiculed conceited people and were quick to help unfortunate ones. Deep down in each of them there was a kind of hearty joviality, a relish of life, not over-delicate, but very invigorating. I never tried to define it, but I was distinctly conscious of it. I could not imagine Antonia's living for a week in any other house in Black Hawk than the Harlings. #Quote by Willa Cather
Independent quotes by Norman Cousins
#31. Hope is independent of the apparatus of logic. #Quote by Norman Cousins
Independent quotes by William Hurt
#32. It just seems like that because I do a lot of independent films that don't get to the mainstream. #Quote by William Hurt
Independent quotes by Joel Bakan
#33. The corporation is not an independent "person" with its own rights, needs, and desires that regulators must respect. It is a state created tool for advancing social and economic policy. #Quote by Joel Bakan
Independent quotes by George Eliot
#34. There were intervals in which she could sit perfectly still, enjoying the outer stillness and the subdued light. The red fire with its gently audible movement seemed like a solemn existence calmly independent of the petty passions, the imbecile desires, the straining after worthless uncertainties, which were daily moving her contempt. Mary was fond of her own thoughts, and could amuse herself well sitting in the twilight with her hands in her lap; for, having early had strong reason to believe that things were not likely to be arranged for her peculiar satisfaction, she wasted no time in astonishment and annoyance at that fact. And she had already come to take life very much as a comedy in which she had a proud, nay, a generous resolution not to act the mean or treacherous part. Mary might have become cynical if she had not had parents whom she honoured, and a well of affectionate gratitude within her, which was all the fuller because she had learned to make no unreasonable claims.

She sat to-night revolving, as she was wont, the scenes of the day, her lips often curling with amusement at the oddities to which her fancy added fresh drollery: people were so ridiculous with their illusions, carrying their fools' caps unawares, thinking their own lies opaque while everybody else's were transparent, making themselves exceptions to everything, as if when all the world looked yellow under a lamp they alone were rosy. #Quote by George Eliot
Independent quotes by Oswald Spengler
#35. Is there a logic of history? Is there, beyond all the casual and incalculable elements of the separate events, something that we may call a metaphysical structure of historic humanity, something that is essentially independent of the outward forms - social, spiritual and political - which we see so clearly? #Quote by Oswald Spengler
Independent quotes by A.A. Milne
#36. [A] quotation is a handy thing to have about, saving one the trouble of thinking for oneself, always a laborious business.
(The Record Lie) #Quote by A.A. Milne
Independent quotes by Beyonce Knowles
#37. I remember being in Japan when Destiny's Child put out 'Independent Women,' and women there were saying how proud they were to have their own jobs, their own independent thinking, their own goals. It made me feel so good, and I realized that one of my responsibilities was to inspire women in a deeper way. #Quote by Beyonce Knowles
Independent quotes by Garth Stein
#38. Terriers are problem solvers. They'll do what you tell them, but only if it happens to be in line with what they wanted to do anyway. #Quote by Garth Stein
Independent quotes by Don DeLillo
#39. Once out of the mailroom, I began to learn more about fear. As soon
as fear begins to ascend, anatomically, from the pit of the stomach to the
throat and brain, from fear of violence to the more nameless kind, you
come to believe you are part of a horrible experiment. I learned to
distrust those superiors who encouraged independent thinking. When you
gave it to them, they returned it in the form of terror, for they knew
that ideas, only that, could hasten their obsolescence. Management asked
for new ideas all the time; memos circulated down the echelons, requesting
bold and challenging concepts. But I learned that new ideas could finish
you unless you wrapped them in a plastic bag. I learned that most of the
secretaries were more intelligent than most of the executives and that the
executive secretaries were to be feared more than anyone. I learned what
closed doors meant and that friendship was not negotiable currency and how
important it was to lie even when there was no need to lie. Words and
meanings were at odds. Words did not say what was being said nor even its
reverse. I learned to speak a new language and soon mastered the special
elements of that tongue. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Independent quotes by Mark Sanborn
#40. Faithfully doing your best, independent of the support, acknowledgment, or reward of others, is a key determinant in a fulfilling career. #Quote by Mark Sanborn
Independent quotes by Richard E. Nisbett
#41. objectivity arose from subjectivity - the recognition that two minds could have different representations of the world and that the world has an existence independent of either representation. This #Quote by Richard E. Nisbett
Independent quotes by Jacob Bronowski
#42. No science is immune to the infection of politics and the corruption of power. #Quote by Jacob Bronowski
Independent quotes by Holliday Grainger
#43. I'd love to do more independent films. #Quote by Holliday Grainger
Independent quotes by Kate Mulgrew
#44. They loved her because she was an independent spirit, unafraid to speak her mind, passionate, impetuous, and brave. Seldom lauded for her beauty, Mary Ryan had something else to offer, something women could grab ahold of and understand. She had a powerful sense of self, and this proved more magnetic and more relatable than any other single quality. #Quote by Kate Mulgrew
Independent quotes by Abraham H. Maslow
#45. The needs for safety, belonging, love relations and for respect can be satisfied only by other people, i.e., only from outside the person. This means considerable dependence on the environment. A person in this dependent position cannot really be said to be governing himself, or in control of his own fate. He must be beholden to the sources of supply of needed gratifications. Their wishes, their whims, their rules and laws govern him and must be appeased lest he jeopardize his sources of supply. He must be, to an extent, "other-directed," and must be sensitive to other people's approval, affection and good will. This is the same as saying that he must adapt and adjust by being flexible and responsive and by changing himself to fit the external situation. He is the dependent variable; the environment is the fixed, independent variable. #Quote by Abraham H. Maslow
Independent quotes by Gorilla Zoe
#46. In changing times, we should all lend our support to the independent retailers. Without independent retailers, many of the biggest names in music would still be undiscovered. They break new artists and movements. We all know the industry is changing, but we can't forget where we came from. #Quote by Gorilla Zoe
Independent quotes by Wendell Berry
#47. Odd as I am sure it will appear to some, I can think of no better form of personal involvement in the cure of the environment than that of gardening. A person who is growing a garden, if he is growing it organically, is improving a piece of the world. He is producing something to eat, which makes him somewhat independent of the grocery business, but he is also enlarging, for himself, the meaning of food and the pleasure of eating. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Independent quotes by Mustafa Akyol
#48. In the 19th century, when Muslims were looking at Europe as an example, they were independent; they were more self-confident. In the early 20th century, with the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the whole Middle East was colonized. And when you have colonization, what do you have? You have anti-colonization. #Quote by Mustafa Akyol
Independent quotes by William F. Buckley, Jr.
#49. I do not, in short, myself believe it is in the least bit undignified to confess to having been critically influenced in one's thinking by a teacher, or a faculty, or a book; but the accent these days is so strong on atomistic intellectual independence that to suggest such a thing is, as I have noted, highly inflammatory. #Quote by William F. Buckley, Jr.
Independent quotes by Oscar Wilde
#50. I turned half-way round and saw Dorian Gray for the first time. When our eyes met, I felt that I was growing pale. A curious sensation of terror came over me. I knew that I had come face to face with some one whose mere personality was so fascinating that, if I allowed it to do so, it would absorb my whole nature, my whole soul, my very art itself. I did not want any external influence in my life. You know yourself, Harry, how independent I am by nature. I have always been my own master; had at least always been so, till I met Dorian Gray. Then--but #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Independent quotes by Samuel Goldwyn
#51. I was always an independent, even when I had partners. #Quote by Samuel Goldwyn
Independent quotes by Lupita Nyong'o
#52. I went to the Independent Spirit Awards and won. #Quote by Lupita Nyong'o
Independent quotes by Leonard Maltin
#53. I teach at USC. I have a big class of 360 kids, only about a fifth of whom are film majors. I don't just show the Hollywood blockbusters. I show independent films, foreign films, documentaries. #Quote by Leonard Maltin
Independent quotes by Dianna Hardy
#54. I love your independence, I love that you don't swoon, I love that you'll fight me with your last breath if you think I'm wrong, and if I ever have to catch you, I swear I'll make sure you're standing on your feet as quickly as you can manage it. #Quote by Dianna Hardy
Independent quotes by Harri Holkeri
#55. Finland had a civil war less than 100 years ago, just like in Ireland. If you look at the history of newly independent nations, civil war is almost every time present, even in the United States. #Quote by Harri Holkeri
Independent quotes by George Washington
#56. My aim has been ... to keep the United States ... independent of all and under the influence of none. #Quote by George Washington
Independent quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#57. The free man is a warrior. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Independent quotes by Bernard D'Espagnat
#58. The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment. #Quote by Bernard D'Espagnat
Independent quotes by Matthew B. Crawford
#59. We're not as free and independent as we thought. Street-level work that disrupts the infrastructure (the sewer system below or the electrical grid above) brings our shared dependence into view. People may inhabit very different worlds even in the same city, according to their wealth or poverty. Yet we all live in the same physical reality, ultimately, and owe a common debt to the world. #Quote by Matthew B. Crawford
Independent quotes by Walpola Rahula
#60. What of ideas and thoughts? They are also a part of the world. But they cannot be sensed, they cannot be conceived by the faculty of the eye, ear, nose, tongue or body. … [I]deas and thoughts are not independent of the world experienced by these five physical sense categories. In fact they depend on, and are conditioned by, physical experiences. … Ideas and thoughts which form a part of the world are … produced and conditioned by physical experiences and are conceived by the mind. #Quote by Walpola Rahula
Independent quotes by Adam Sedgwick
#61. From first to last it is a dish of rank materialism cleverly cooked up ... And why is this done? For no other reason, I am sure, except to make us independent of a Creator. #Quote by Adam Sedgwick
Independent quotes by Murray N. Rothbard
#62. The greatest danger to the State is independent intellectual criticism. #Quote by Murray N. Rothbard
Independent quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#63. To maximize our lives we think that we should get up and join in the race. Yet, we rarely consider that maybe it's less about joining a race and more about actually creating one. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Independent quotes by Beatriz Williams
#64. You mustn't ever try to save me, all right?I like to sail close to the wind, as close as I can,but I won't capsize #Quote by Beatriz Williams
Independent quotes by Robert Musil
#65. In earlier times, one had an easier conscience about being a person than one does today. People were like cornstalks in a field, probably more violently tossed back and forth by God, hail, fire, pestilence, and war than they are today, but as a whole, as a city, a region, a field, and as to what personal movement was left to the individual stalk – all this was clearly defined and could be answered for. But today responsibility's center of gravity is not in people but in circumstances. Have we not noticed that experiences have made themselves independent of people? They have gone on the stage, into books, into the reports of research institutes and explorers, into ideological or religious communities, which foster certain kinds of experience at the expense of others as if they are conducting a kind of social experiment, and insofar as experiences are not actually being developed, they are simply left dangling in the air. Who can say nowadays that his anger is really his own anger when so many people talk about it and claim to know more about it than he does? A world of qualities without a man has arisen, of experiences without the person who experiences them, and it almost looks as though ideally private experience is a thing of the past, and that the friendly burden of personal responsibility is to dissolve into a system of formulas of possible meanings. Probably the dissolution of the anthropocentric point of view, which for such a long time considered man to be at the cente #Quote by Robert Musil
Independent quotes by Rebecca Traister
#66. In part, that's because when we delay marriage, it's not just women who become independent. It's also men, who, like women, learn to clothe and feed themselves, to clean their homes iron their shirts and pack their own suitcases. #Quote by Rebecca Traister
Independent quotes by Anne Hathaway
#67. I loved Catwoman's sense of humor. I love how sly she is. I love how she, to use a cat metaphor, walks the fence and you don't know which side she's going to come down on. She's totally independent. And let's face it, she's badass. #Quote by Anne Hathaway
Independent quotes by B.C. Forbes
#68. He is a wise man who seeks by every legitimate means to make all the money he can honestly, for money can do so many worthwhile things in this world, not merely for one's self but for others. But he is an unmitigated fool who imagines for a moment that it is more important to make the money than to make it honestly. One of the advantages of possessing money is that it facilitates one's independence and mental attitude. The man head over heels in debt is more slave than independent. #Quote by B.C. Forbes
Independent quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#69. It is the question that is also asked by modern political theory: Can politics accept truth as a structural category? Or must truth, as something unattainable, be relegated to the subjective sphere, its place taken by an attempt to build peace and justice using whatever instruments are available to power? By relying on truth, does not politics, in view of the impossibility of attaining consensus on truth, make itself a tool of particular traditions that in reality are merely forms of holding on to power?
And yet, on the other hand, what happens when truth counts for nothing? What kind of justice is then possible? Must there not be common criteria that guarantee real justice for all - criteria that are independent of the arbitrariness of changing opinions and powerful lobbies? Is it not true that the great dictatorships were fed by the power of the ideological lie and that only truth was capable of bringing freedom? #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Independent quotes by Nicola Sturgeon
#70. I desperately want Scotland to be an independent country. I cannot, though, sit here and tell you definitively that it will happen, and that it will happen on this timescale, because I have to respect the opinion of the people of Scotland. #Quote by Nicola Sturgeon
Independent quotes by Alan Moore
#71. I've had years of bizarre hallucinogenic magical experiences in which I believed I had communicated with entities that may well have been disassociated parts of my own personality or conceivably some independent entity of a metaphysical nature. Both would seem equally interesting. #Quote by Alan Moore
Independent quotes by Michael Pitt
#72. I'm not prejudiced about what type of movies I'm in, what form they take or whether they're studio or independent. I just want to make films that are going to be good. #Quote by Michael Pitt
Independent quotes by Pushpa Rana
#73. I would rather be alone than having a solitary company. #Quote by Pushpa Rana
Independent quotes by Matt Groening
#74. Where do babies come from? Don't bother asking adults. They lie like pigs. However, diligent independent research and hours of playground consultation have yielded fruitful, if tentative, results. There are several theories. Near as we can figure out, it has something to do with acting ridiculous in the dark. We believe it is similar to dogs when they act peculiar and ride each other. This is called "making love". Careful study of popular song lyrics, advertising catch-lines, TV sitcoms, movies, and T-Shirt inscriptions offers us significant clues as to its nature. Apparently it makes grown-ups insipid and insane. Some graffiti was once observed that said "sex is good". All available evidence, however, points to the contrary. #Quote by Matt Groening
Independent quotes by Paul Douglas
#75. It's a terrible thing that we cannot really trust the FDA or NCI (National Cancer Institute). We need, therefore, an independent scientific investigation. #Quote by Paul Douglas
Independent quotes by Arthur Koestler
#76. As we ascend to the hierarchies of living matter, we find, even on the lowest level observable through the electron microscope, sub-cellular structures-organelles-of staggering complexity. And the most striking fact is that these minuscule parts of the cell function as self-governing wholes in their own right, each following its own statute-book of rules. One type of organelles look as quasi-independent agencies after the cell's growth; others after its energy supply, reproduction, communications, and so on. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Independent quotes by Ryan Montgomery
#77. With it all independent I feel like we're doing it one person at a time turning people into believers one person at a time. Just that good old-fashioned grind, get out there, touch the people. #Quote by Ryan Montgomery
Independent quotes by Christopher Brookmyre
#78. Is the burden of independent thought wearing you down? Do you dread the indecision that awaits every time you open your wardrobe? Are you embarrassed by your reticence when you hear other people discuss current affairs, music, relationships, etcetera? Don't worry, you're not alone. Help is just a pair of clippers away! We've helped thousands of sad losers avoid confronting their loneliness and inadequacy, and we can do the same for you. We'll tell you what to wear. We'll tell you what to think. We'll tell you what music to listen to. and most importantly, we'll bring you together with lots of people exactly the same as yourself - it's just like having friends! #Quote by Christopher Brookmyre
Independent quotes by Ananda Coomaraswamy
#79. We have come to think of art and work as incompatible, or at least independent categories and have for the first time in history created an industry without art. #Quote by Ananda Coomaraswamy
Independent quotes by Lexi Ryan
#80. Single and independent are words women use to make themselves feel better about being lonely and overwhelmed. #Quote by Lexi Ryan
Independent quotes by John Adams
#81. We should be unfaithful to ourselves if we should ever lose sight of the danger to our Liberties if anything partial or extraneous should infect the purity of our free, fair, virtuous, and independent elections. If an election is to be determined by a majority of a single vote, and that can be procured by a party through artifice or corruption, the Government may be the choice of a party for its own ends, not of the nation for the national good. #Quote by John Adams
Independent quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#82. Most people say that Shakespeare rocked merely because most people say that Shakespeare rocked. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Independent quotes by Edward Kennedy
#83. Ultimately, the courts will make the final judgment whether the White House has gone too far. Independent and impartial judges must assess the proper balance between protecting our liberties and protecting our national security. #Quote by Edward Kennedy
Independent quotes by John Battelle
#84. There's a reason publishers don't build on top of social platforms: publishers are an independent lot, and they naturally understand the value of owning your own domain. Publishers don't want to be beholden to the shifting sands of inscrutable platform policies. #Quote by John Battelle
Independent quotes by Janis Joplin
#85. Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers. #Quote by Janis Joplin
Independent quotes by Bertrand Russell
#86. Passive acceptance of the teacher's wisdom is easy to most boys and girls. It involves no effort of independent thought, and seems rational because the teacher knows more than his pupils; it is moreover the way to win the favour of the teacher unless he is a very exceptional man. Yet the habit of passive acceptance is a disastrous one in later life. It causes man to seek and to accept a leader, and to accept as a leader whoever is established in that position. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Independent quotes by Jackson Browne
#87. I'm a big fan of British journalists like 'The Independent's Robert Fisk, but it's hard to find voices like his in the U.S. #Quote by Jackson Browne
Independent quotes by Sarah Tolcser
#88. Akhaia must be a wonderful empire," I said. "I guess that's why little bits of it keep cutting themselves off to become independent. #Quote by Sarah Tolcser
Independent quotes by Sandra Day O'Connor
#89. Apparently a great many people have forgotten that the framers of our Constitution went to such great effort to create an independent judicial branch that would not be subject to retaliation by either the executive branch or the legislative branch because of some decision made by those judges. #Quote by Sandra Day O'Connor
Independent quotes by Miranda Esmonde-White
#90. Life is programmed to live,
Life is created to live,
Life does not surrender easily,
We can be strong
If we choose to be strong
We can be energetic
If we choose to be energetic
We can be pain-free
If we choose to be pain-free
We ccan be independent
If we choose to be independent.
But if we choose all tha, we must choose to move.
We must choose to exercise! #Quote by Miranda Esmonde-White
Independent quotes by Julia Cameron
#91. We can believe we are being self-reliant and independent, and yet there is still clearly an overarching destiny, a Great Maker. So when we say we have faith in ourselves, we cannot really separate the small self from the large self. #Quote by Julia Cameron
Independent quotes by Thomas Paine
#92. To bring the matter to one point, Is the power who is jealous of our prosperity, a proper power to govern us? Whoever says, No, to this question, is an independent, for independency means no more than this, whether we shall make our own law, or, whether the king, the greatest enemy which this continent hath, or can have, shall tell us there shall be no laws but such as I like. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Independent quotes by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
#93. Going forward, I would love to work with directors like Rian Johnson and Joss Whedon; people like that who are doing big films but do have really independent voices. That's kind of what I want to focus on, is always working with people with at least an independent point of view, even if it's not an independent film. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Independent quotes by Ben Lewin
#94. By the time I was a young man, I was pretty independent. #Quote by Ben Lewin
Independent quotes by Andrea Arnold
#95. When I was in New York I heard many people saying that the independent film industry was in big trouble. I was reflecting on this when I came home. Realizing that ever since I started filmmaking, people have being saying that. But somehow it keeps going. Filmmakers keep going. We need stories to make sense of the world and some people like me are driven to tell them. I have faith this will always be possible. #Quote by Andrea Arnold
Independent quotes by Wim Wenders
#96. The culture of independent film criticism has totally gone down the drain and this seems to come with the territory of the consumer age that we are now living in. #Quote by Wim Wenders
Independent quotes by Jim Keith
#97. Not surprisingly Wells places the City of London - the international center of banking culture - and its financial credit as responsible for knitting together world economic life over the previous hundred years. With these innovations in communications and finance, but also with the frustrations and wars inherent (so he says) in the existence of independent national states and sovereignties, came about the gradual dawning of the idea of the World-State. #Quote by Jim Keith

Independent quotes by Lee Strasberg
#99. A great actor is independent of the poet, because the supreme essence of feeling does not reside in prose or in verse, but in the accent with which it is delivered. #Quote by Lee Strasberg
Independent quotes by Angus King
#100. My desire is to be as independent as I can be, as long as I can be, subject to being effective. #Quote by Angus King
Independent quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#101. She had heard someone say something about an Independent Labour Party, and was furious that she had not been asked. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
Independent quotes by Adrienne Rich
#102. Responsibility to yourself means refusing to let others do your thinking, talking, and naming for you; it means learning to respect and use your own brains and instincts; hence, grappling with hard work. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Independent quotes by Gautama Buddha
#103. As a net is made up of a series of ties, so everything in this world is connected by a series of ties. If anyone thinks that the mesh of a net is an independent, isolated thing, he is mistaken. It is called a net because it is made up of a series of interconnected meshes, and each mesh has its place and responsibility in relation to other meshes. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Independent quotes by Dee Hock
#104. Of this we can be certain: at no time, in no place, and in no way is anything in the universe separate, independent, or unrelated. #Quote by Dee Hock
Independent quotes by Jeh Johnson
#105. I think that the potential for homegrown terrorist attacks is something that we have to be very concerned about, because, in many respects, it's harder to detect when you have an independent actor who may be living in our midst, in our own communities. #Quote by Jeh Johnson
Independent quotes by George Wendt
#106. I get called to do a lot of labors of love ... independent films on very small budgets. If I have the time and if the project speaks to me, it's better than sitting around, right? #Quote by George Wendt
Independent quotes by Nicholas Tharcher
#107. Inevitably it follows that anyone with an independent mind must become 'one who resists or opposes an authority or established convention': a rebel ... And if enough people come to agree with - and follow - the REBEL, we now have a DEVIL. Until, of course, still more people agree. And then, finally, we have ... GREATNESS. #Quote by Nicholas Tharcher
Independent quotes by George H. W. Bush
#108. Poland should be strong and prosperous and independent and play its proper role as a great nation in the heart of Europe. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Independent quotes by Julia Child
#109. My mother was independent. She had grown up in Dalton and Pittsfield, in western Massachusetts, and she was one of the first women drivers in that area. #Quote by Julia Child
Independent quotes by Nick Stahl
#110. Sometimes you find that there is better material in small and more independent movies. There's more risk-taking. #Quote by Nick Stahl
Independent quotes by Jill Soloway
#111. Independent filmmakers already have their heads around people on their couches watching their movies. #Quote by Jill Soloway
Independent quotes by Ada Lovelace
#112. It were much to be desired, that when mathematical processes pass through the human brain instead of through the medium of inanimate mechanism, it were equally a necessity of things that the reasonings connected with operations should hold the same just place as a clear and well-defined branch of the subject of analysis, a fundamental but yet independent ingredient in the science, which they must do in studying the engine. #Quote by Ada Lovelace
Independent quotes by Barack Obama
#113. Independent economists say immigration reform will grow our economy and shrink our deficits by almost $1 trillion in the next two decades. And for good reason: when people come here to fulfill their dreams - to study, invent, and contribute to our culture - they make our country a more attractive place for businesses to locate and create jobs for everyone. So let's get immigration reform done this year. #Quote by Barack Obama
Independent quotes by Jenna Bush
#114. Our parents have always encouraged us to be independent and dream big. #Quote by Jenna Bush
Independent quotes by Karl Marx
#115. In the social production of their existence, men inevitably enter into definite relations, which are independent of their will, namely relations of production appropriate to a given stage in the development of their material forces of production. The totality of these relations of production constitutes the economic structure of society, the real foundation, on which arises a legal and political superstructure and to which correspond definite forms of social consciousness. The mode of production of material life conditions the general process of social, political and intellectual life. It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness. At a certain stage of development, the material productive forces of society come into conflict with the existing relations of production or – this merely expresses the same thing in legal terms – with the property relations within the framework of which they have operated hitherto. From forms of development of the productive forces these relations turn into their fetters. Then begins an era of social revolution. The changes in the economic foundation lead sooner or later to the transformation of the whole immense superstructure. #Quote by Karl Marx
Independent quotes by Toby Jones
#116. They seem much rarer now, those auteur films that come out of a director's imagination and are elliptical and hermetic. All those films that got me into independent cinema when I was watching it seem thin on the ground. #Quote by Toby Jones
Independent quotes by Daniel Barenboim
#117. In times of totalitarian or autocratic rule, music (indeed culture in general) is often the only avenue of independent thought. It is the only way people can meet as equals, and exchange ideas. Culture then becomes primarily the voice of the oppressed and it takes over from politics as a driving force for change. #Quote by Daniel Barenboim
Independent quotes by Judith Hanson Lasater
#118. To cultivate empathy means to see the world through the eyes of another without judgement, without trying to "fix" it, without needing it to be different. It is acceptance independent of agreement, understanding without any implied coercion for oneself or the other to change. There is also no sense of wanting to "educate" the other person about how their perspective is wrong and ours is right. #Quote by Judith Hanson Lasater
Independent quotes by Neil Steinberg
#119. Nothing is more fun than to watch zealots go off the rails. They try to present themselves as rational, independent-minded persons like yourselves, balanced individuals who have examined our great wide world, weighed their options carefully, then coolly decided to devote their lives to Beanie Babies. #Quote by Neil Steinberg
Independent quotes by Amy Chua
#120. Tiger parenting is all about raising independent, creative, courageous kids. In America today, there's a dangerous tendency to romanticize creativity in a way that may undermine it. #Quote by Amy Chua
Independent quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#121. I was more independent than any farmer in Concord, for I was not anchored to a house or farm, but could follow the bent of my genius, which is a very crooked one, every moment. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Independent quotes by Dane Cook
#122. Sometimes, when a person gains a lot of success at a very young age, they become targets, and it's really easy to follow the crowds and not make independent decisions based on truly how you feel. #Quote by Dane Cook
Independent quotes by Rutherford B. Hayes
#123. The ex-Presidential situation has its advantages, but with them are certain drawbacks. The correspondence is large. The meritorious demands on one are large. More independent out than in place, but still something of the bondage of the place that was willingly left. On the whole, however, I find many reasons to be content. #Quote by Rutherford B. Hayes
Independent quotes by Margaret Chase Smith
#124. Those of us who shout the loudest about Americanism in making character assassinations are all too frequently those who, by our own words and acts, ignore some of the basic principles of Americanism: The right to criticize. The right to hold unpopular beliefs. The right to protest. The right of independent thought. #Quote by Margaret Chase Smith
Independent quotes by Alan W. Watts
#125. We do not need a new religion or a new bible. We need a new experience - a new feeling of what it is to be "I." The lowdown (which is, of course, the secret and profound view) on life is that our normal sensation of self is a hoax, or, at best, a temporary role that we are playing, or have been conned into playing - with our own tacit consent, just as every hypnotized person is basically willing to be hypnotized. The most strongly enforced of all known taboos is the taboo against knowing who or what you really are behind the mask of your apparently separate, independent, and isolated ego. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Independent quotes by Christine Feehan
#126. She wasn't asking his permission either. He wasn't in charge. She'd made that clear more than once. Shylah was an independent thinker, was used to working alone. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Independent quotes by Gaby Hoffmann
#127. There's plenty of great independent films to do, but you can't support yourself making independent film as an actress. #Quote by Gaby Hoffmann
Independent quotes by John Cusack
#128. I don't want to produce anymore small or independent movies because it's just too hard these days. #Quote by John Cusack
Independent quotes by Jesse Eisenberg
#129. I live in New York City, where, if you're in a movie at a popular independent theater, you think you're king of the world, because you're in a bubble. So there's no way for me to properly conceive of the attention that the movie gets in a way that doesn't make me confused. #Quote by Jesse Eisenberg
Independent quotes by Aaron Clarey
#130. True leadership, true and genuine leading requires intelligence, an independent mind, the ability to delay gratification, the ability to think long term, and above all else a spine. #Quote by Aaron Clarey
Independent quotes by Herman E. Daly
#131. Presumably, technology has made man increasingly independent of his environment. But, in fact, technology has merely substituted nonrenewable resources for renewables, which is more an increase than a decrease in dependence. #Quote by Herman E. Daly
Independent quotes by Charles Churchill
#132. Genius is independent of situation. #Quote by Charles Churchill
Independent quotes by Davan Yahya Khalil
#133. The history of Kurdistan doesn't just tell us why it hasn't become independent so far. It also helps to make the case for Kurdistan's independence. It is a desire founded, not just on some passing modern whim in that direction, or on spurious claims to natural and obvious borders, but on a sustained historical focus and desire by its people, on pre-existing promises, on the need for protection from the kind of atrocities that have historically been perpetrated against the Kurds, and on the rather artificial way in which Kurdistan has been denied its existence in the past. #Quote by Davan Yahya Khalil
Independent quotes by Neil R. Lightfoot
#134. Our New Testament text of today is a reconstructed or restored text. It has been reconstructed by modern scholarship from three independent lines of witnesses: the manuscripts, the versions, and the writings of early Christians (Church Fathers). In #Quote by Neil R. Lightfoot
Independent quotes by Ruth Ahmed
#135. Her voice was erudite, interesting; the voice of someone who straddled two cultures with a surety and style that I wished my boyfriend could find. She was smart, funny, and, above all, completely capable of controlling her life and what happened to it. #Quote by Ruth Ahmed
Independent quotes by Gilly Macmillan
#136. Carpe diem was the lesson to be learned. It's what I had been trying to teach Ben when I let him run ahead in the woods. Seize the day - be brave - be independent - be thoughtful - don't be scared to make mistakes - keep learning - all of those things, all the time. And somebody had taken him. More fool me. Ruth's #Quote by Gilly Macmillan
Independent quotes by Mia Wasikowska
#137. The independent films are really where I kind of come from and where I feel comfortable. #Quote by Mia Wasikowska
Independent quotes by Fennel Hudson
#138. Traditionalism is not fashionable. It is the dog-crawl to fashion's catwalk. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Independent quotes by Thomas Nagel
#139. What we take ourselves to be doing when we think about what is the case or how we should act is something that cannot be reconciled with a reductive naturalism, for reasons distinct from those that entail the irreducibility of consciousness. It is not merely the subjectivity of thought but its capacity to transcend subjectivity and to discover what is objectively the case that presents a problem ...
Thought and reasoning are correct or incorrect in virtue of something independent of the thinker's beliefs, and even independent of the community of thinkers to which he belongs. (p. 71) #Quote by Thomas Nagel
Independent quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#140. Surely love has nothing to do with the mind, it is not the product of the mind; love is entirely independent of calculation, of thought. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Independent quotes by Danielle Steel
#141. Simon, she was more independent #Quote by Danielle Steel
Independent quotes by Ernst Junger
#142. Many things were certainly different up here; not only the earth was spiritualized and made cerebral by long nights. There was books in every farmhouse. And it was not uncommon for daughters of farmers to leave in order to pursue their studies and then return. When you saw them haying or milking cows, there was no way of knowing if they hadn't spent years in seminaries and colleges. They were more free and independent, as well as intellectualy more agile, than men upon whom the gravity of mountains and the monotones of the sea seemed to weight more heavily. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Independent quotes by Willis Carto
#143. The nationalist, however loves his own kind as the extension of his family, realizing that universal values are primitive values or no values at all; that men can be free and content only within their native cultural environment. This profound insight completely escapes the immature internationalists. The nationalist seeks peace - not the peace of the pacifist or the slave but the peace of the free and independent. He believes in nonaggression, nonintervention and neutrality whereas the internationalist sees every dispute anywhere in the world as an excuse for the raising of an army, the floating of a bond issue and the raising of taxes - letting the suckers, of course, do the fighting, the buying of bonds and the paying of taxes. Nationalism is the only sane approach to the problem of world
peace in an increasingly crazy and dangerous world. It is the spirit
of live and let live, the healthy ethic of self-respect, racial integrity
and conscientious concern for the rights of others. #Quote by Willis Carto
Independent quotes by Tess Henley
#144. As an independent artist, you're always figuring out how you're going to fund your next album. #Quote by Tess Henley
Independent quotes by Jim Rohn
#145. Let the views of others educate and inform you, but let your decisions be a product of your own conclusions. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Independent quotes by Beth Revis
#146. Mom used to say that the thoughts in our heads were nothing more than electrical impulses. I remember Dad and her talking about this over dinner. It frustrated Dad that the human brain can fire electrical sparks and think, but that the electricity he'd pump into an android brain would never give it independent thought. The body isn't that different from a machine. Humans and androids both run on electricity.
That lightning spark of energy I saw in the reverie.
That was my mother's last thought, an echo of electricity, something that sparked when I entered her dreamscape.
That spark is gone now. Her life is gone now. Everything that made her, her, is gone now. Faded into nothing. #Quote by Beth Revis
Independent quotes by Stephen R. Covey
#147. Independent people who do not have the maturity to think and actinterdependently may be good individual producers, but they won't be good leaders or team players #Quote by Stephen R. Covey
Independent quotes by Wim Wenders
#148. It's very hard to find critics or a magazine today that will publish material that is genuinely independent and written without any concern about being cut off some distributor's list or not be invited or flown into screenings. #Quote by Wim Wenders
Independent quotes by Ella Dominguez
#149. It's okay if you need to be saved. Sometimes even the strongest, most independent people need to be rescued. #Quote by Ella Dominguez
Independent quotes by Stephanie Elizondo Griest
#150. That's because true travel, the kind with no predetermined end, is one of the most selfish endeavors we can possibly undertake-an act in which we focus solely on our own fulfillment, with little regard to those we leave behind. After all, we're the ones venturing out into the big crazy world, filling up journals, growing like weeds. And we have the gall to think they're just sitting at home, soaking in security and stability.
It is only when we reopen these wrapped and ribboned boxes, upon our triumphant return home, that we discover nothing is the way we had left it before. #Quote by Stephanie Elizondo Griest
Independent quotes by Zachary Levi
#151. I want to go create my own independent content and entertainment, in new models and in new ways, and essentially show studios and networks that people are good. #Quote by Zachary Levi
Independent quotes by Anonymous
#152. Three of the most important factors in determining to what degree a government's power will be controlled or uncontrolled therefore are: (1) the relative desire of the populace to impose limits on the government's power; (2) the relative strength of the subjects' independent organizations and institutions to withdraw collectively the sources of power; and (3) the population's relative ability to withhold their consent and assistance. #Quote by Anonymous
Independent quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#153. People say, "What's it like to be a minority of one, or a kick-bag for the Internet?" It washes off me like jizz off a porn star's face. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Independent quotes by Lapo Elkann
#154. My company Independent Ideas worked with Gucci on a special edition Fiat 500. #Quote by Lapo Elkann
Independent quotes by Carlos Wallace
#155. Hip hop in its purest form has evolved, inspired, educated and created a lucrative independent revenue stream for what was once a poverty-stricken, hopeless class of artists. #Quote by Carlos Wallace
Independent quotes by Fred Seibert
#156. Up until the time Turner Broadcasting bought Hanna-Barbera, it was essentially an independent studio whose planning cycle had to be nine months. You got a pickup in January, and you put it on the air in September. That's been the cycle. #Quote by Fred Seibert
Independent quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#157. Sunglasses are more useful to a blind man than freedom of speech is to a man who does not think for himself. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Independent quotes by A.E.H. Veenman
#158. I decided, long ago, back-room negotiations with a nine iron and a pen, witness tampering, and suppression of evidence weren't for me. That's
what was expected of an independent lawyer hired by Louis Fernoza.

I wanted the corner office overlooking a
cityscape, the fine car and house, and the ability to sleep at night with a clear conscience. I'd say I achieved it all but not without a price. #Quote by A.E.H. Veenman
Independent quotes by Rebecca Traister
#159. There is an assumption, put forth by everyone from greeting card companies to Bruce Springsteen, that nobody likes to be alone, least of all women. But many women, long valued in context to their relations to other people, find solitude- both the act of being alone and the attitude of being independent- a surprisingly sweet relief. #Quote by Rebecca Traister
Independent quotes by Robert Higgs
#160. Nearly all libertarians were once conservatives or progressives or independent statists of some stripe. But scarcely any conservatives, progressives, or independent statists were once libertarians. This asymmetry in the direction of ideological migration is interesting and perhaps informative. #Quote by Robert Higgs
Independent quotes by Don Nickles
#161. I have always thought that Israel, as an independent and sovereign nation, had a right to defend itself. #Quote by Don Nickles
Independent quotes by Zooey Deschanel
#162. When you work on a movie, especially an independent movie, it's a lot of work to make it! It's not just our job as actors - so many people are working so hard, and even the littlest movie takes a lot of work. #Quote by Zooey Deschanel
Independent quotes by Craig Ferguson
#163. There's just a feeling you get from certain things you do in life that just kind of feel pure and independent of what's actually, physically, going on. #Quote by Craig Ferguson
Independent quotes by Linda Fiorentino
#164. I was still making movies so it wasnt as if I were working in a bar, but they were independent films that couldnt find distributors. #Quote by Linda Fiorentino
Independent quotes by Tammy Baldwin
#165. In my grandfather's lab, scientists did independent research, and peers reviewed and commented on its merits. Politics, he taught me, had no place in the scientific process. #Quote by Tammy Baldwin
Independent quotes by Thomas E. Mann
#166. We are not separate and independent entities, but like links in a chain, and we could not by any means be what we are without those who went before us and showed us the way. #Quote by Thomas E. Mann
Independent quotes by Edward Snowden
#167. My case clearly demonstrates the need for comprehensive whistleblower protection act reform. If we had had a real process in place, and reports of wrongdoing could be taken to real, independent arbiters rather than captured officials, I might not have had to sacrifice so much to do what at this point even the President seems to agree needed to be done. #Quote by Edward Snowden
Independent quotes by Diana Kander
#168. That's on purpose. The problem and the solution are totally independent of one another. First, you have to prove that the problem exists, that it's a serious problem that amounts to a migraine. Then we can worry about whether customers will actually buy your product as a solution. Make sense? #Quote by Diana Kander
Independent quotes by Frank Beddor
#169. Silence is hereby outlawed. Silence breeds independent thought, which in turn breeds dissent. #Quote by Frank Beddor
Independent quotes by Victor Papanek
#170. If design is to be ecologically responsible, it must be independent of concern for the gross national product. #Quote by Victor Papanek
Independent quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#171. Two seemingly antagonistic forces, equally deleterious in their actions and ultimately combining to produce their results, are at present ruling over our educational institutions, although these were based originally upon very different principles. These forces are: a striving to achieve the greatest possible extension of education on the one hand, and a tendency to minimize and to weaken it on the other. The first-named would fain spread learning among the greatest possible number of people; the second would compel education to renounce its highest and most independent claims in order to subordinate itself to the service of the State. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Independent quotes by Ruth Bader Ginsburg
#172. My mother told me two things constantly. One was to be a lady and the other was to be independent, and the law was something most unusual for those times because for most girls growing up in the '40s, the most important degree was not your B.A. but your M.R.S. #Quote by Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Independent quotes by Jodi Ann Bickley
#173. I guess we all wish we were tough little cactus plants: needing the occasional bit of water but on the whole completely independent, able to protect ourselves when need be. I wanted to be a cactus. I wanted nothing more than to grow spikes and root myself in the ground. #Quote by Jodi Ann Bickley
Independent quotes by Samuel P. Huntington
#174. On January 3, 1992, a meeting of Russian and American scholars took place in the auditorium of a government building in Moscow. Two weeks earlier the Soviet Union had ceased to exist and the Russian Federation had become an independent country. As a result, the statue of Lenin which previously graced the stage of the auditorium had disappeared and instead the flag of the Russian Federation was now displayed on the front wall. The only problem, one American observed, was that the flag had been hung upside down. #Quote by Samuel P. Huntington
Independent quotes by Chris Rock
#175. I'm an independent, but I got to admit I lean Democratic. #Quote by Chris Rock
Independent quotes by Sönke Ahrens
#176. The real enemy of independent thinking is not an external authority, but our own inertia. The ability to generate new ideas has more to do with breaking with old habits of thinking than with coming up with as many ideas as possible. #Quote by Sönke Ahrens
Independent quotes by Saddam Hussein
#177. In short, we want an independent, liberated and socialist Iraq. Furthermore, we want Iraq to play a vanguard role in the area, particularly in the Arab homeland. We want Iraq to play a pioneering role in consolidating the anti-imperialist line of policy on the international level. #Quote by Saddam Hussein
Independent quotes by Arundhati Roy
#178. If protesting against having a nuclear bomb implanted in my brain is anti-Hindu and anti-national, then I secede. I hereby declare myself an independent, mobile republic. I am a citizen of the earth. I own no territory. I have no flag. My policies are simple. I'm willing to sign any nuclear non-proliferation treaty or nuclear test ban treaty that's going. Immigrants are welcome. You can help me design our flag. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Independent quotes by Rajiv Gandhi
#179. India is an Old country but a young nation ... I am young and I too have a dream, I dream of India Strong, Independent, Self-Reliant and in the front rank of the nations of the world, in the service of mankind. #Quote by Rajiv Gandhi
Independent quotes by Patrick Warburton
#180. I believe I'm doing the right thing in trying to step away from that and to take chances and work on little independent films and do stuff like that wild dance scene. #Quote by Patrick Warburton
Independent quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#181. You will be surprised how much more profitable an independent man is than a slave who thinks of nothing more than his next meal. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Independent quotes by Matthew Arnold
#182. What actions are the most excellent? Those, certainly, which most powerfully appeal to the great primary human affections: to those elementary feelings which subsist permanently in the race, and which are independent of time. These feelings are permanent and the same; that which interests them is permanent and the same also. #Quote by Matthew Arnold
Independent quotes by Neve Campbell
#183. I find the most interesting and most daring scripts tend to be for independent films. #Quote by Neve Campbell
Independent quotes by Will Ferrell
#184. On the set of an independent film you can tell that nobody is doing it for the money. Everyone is there because they love the script. A smaller budget sort of unifies everyone; it's a real team effort and that's amazing. But these opportunities just don't present themselves that often for me, so basically any chance I get to do something different I jump on it. #Quote by Will Ferrell
Independent quotes by John Green
#185. I wouldn't have a career if it weren't for independent bookstores. #Quote by John Green
Independent quotes by Abraham Joshua Heschel
#186. Gallantly, ceaselessly, quietly, man must fight for inner liberty" to remain independent of the enslavement of the material world. "Inner liberty depends upon being exempt from domination of things as well as from domination of people. There are many who have acquired a high degree of political and social liberty, but only very few are not enslaved to things. This is our constant problem - how to live with people and remain free, how to live with things and remain independent. #Quote by Abraham Joshua Heschel
Independent quotes by Christophe Lemaitre
#187. It's a completely independent atelier and company. We develop the prototypes here. There's a pattern maker, a sample maker, a commercial team, a head of sales, an in-house production team. That's the price of independence. And in the studio I work closely with Sarah-Linh on the collection, and Nao takes care of development. #Quote by Christophe Lemaitre

Independent quotes by Carly Fiorina
#189. As president, I will ensure that the United States is the global energy powerhouse of the 21st century.That means reinstating the Keystone XL Pipeline that President[Barack] Obama rejected. It also means rolling back the regulations from this administration that limit our ability to find resources by imposing regulations on hydraulic fracturing and our ability to be energy independent by regulating drilling on federal lands. As president, I will make America an energy leader through technology and innovation. #Quote by Carly Fiorina

Independent quotes by James Connolly

Independent quotes by Charlotte McPherren
